i have a friend in auckland who has structured his business to work 4 longer days a week, so he can take fridays off to mentor a young man… not just talk, but actually teach him how to work, & do some small projects together. (my friend is a builder).
the interesting thing is that the young dude didn’t actually want to be mentored… so it took a bit of persistence to start that friendship.
jesus thought mentoring was important, so he structured his ‘business’ around that goal.
that’s my goal for this year. to be honest i actually suck at mentoring, because i have never been mentored. my relationship with christian leadership as a teenager was more like they wanted to cast demons out of me…
anyways, that’s my goal… mentoring. just baby steps right now. i win some, i lose some.
